Re: PCV valve

I think they are 1/4 npt thread so you would have to get a 3/8”x1/4” reducer bushing and i ran them horizontally with no problems. They also made them that flow in the opposite direction.

Re: PCV valve

I have a couple of Fram ones that have npt threads that can screw into the manifold then you only have to run a hose to it. I used them on early sbc.
I’ll get the part number off one.

Re: 8BA spark plug wire brackets

Long one on the right short on the left?

The best I can tell they had the two clover leaf one for the 4 wires on the passenger (right) side. Maybe on the thermostat housing?
